I used two or three SLC-Off images to create a composite. Rather a 
straightforward job using r.patch. Make sure you understand how r.patch works 
(the order of the supplied raster maps matters). Of course, there is no doubt 
that you can play with the various interpolation techniques. In this case I 
did not so I can't give more info on it.
